Constance Morris House reopens after renovations

After the Constance Morris House was closed for renovations since last August, its first set since it moved into its current location in 1988, Pillars Community Health has reopened the domestic violence shelter in LaGrange.

The organization celebrated the shelter’s new look with a ribbon cutting the morning of June 27, one day before the house opened its doors again to survivors, followed by an open house for attendees to see the new space. Pillars Director of Marketing Stefin Steberl said in an email that the organization moved the shelter’s residents into local hotels while the renovations were underway.
